I guess I let things get out of hand since my husband died (4 Yrs ago) and now I feel strong enough to put down the Ben & Jerry's and start fresh. At first I stopped drinking and smoking, then started the diet. (Thought I'd lose my mind) Now, I'm smoking some, but dieting better. I've actually lost 10 LBS! When I get hungry (or crave a smoke) I crunch on celery. I'm beginning to feel like a rabbit, but still motivated.

Feeling optimistic
Brilliant approach, I think. Long term life habits seems to be key - I've lost 32 lbs since coming here - then get in bad habits, and off I go again - but when I get back to it, modest reductions in ...

Those nacho cheese ball things are horrible! My mother in law likes them and gave me a pack and I could barely choke down the whole thing!
